about

Harlan McLaren Brennan is Buni Kimono!

The name "Harlan" translates to "land of the hares"... Hares... rabbits... rabbits... bunny... bunny... Buni. Kimono just because. Maybe because of Bowie's "China Girl". Maybe.

Buni Kimono is Harlan's 70s Glam alter-ego. His pseudonym. His commedia dell'arte. Think the aforementioned Bowie ala Ziggy. Marc Bolan ala T-Rex with Ringo on drums... but with footy sleepers.

"Neon Nursery", Buni Kimono's first (and likely last) single recounts the magical place where Buni and all the glamer than glam kool kids hang when the lights go out and the Moms and Dads go to bed. It is a magical place filled with all of the fluffy, psychedelic, baby-carroted landscaped, things that Harlan loves.

The song was written and produced by Harlan's parents, Gabrielle and Jake Brennan and co-produced by the immensely talented producer/engineer/great-dad, Brian Charles at Zippah Recording Studios in Brookline, MA. Mike Piehl, Annie Hoffman, and Jared Egan played on this track as well. Backing vocals provided by the Cosmos Kids.

lyrics

NEON NURSERY

I LOVE THEM TICKLES AND DOUG THE DOG
MY DRAGON SLIPPERS AND MY METAL SONGS
OH YEAH....

MY PURPLE PUFFS AND MY SHARKY'S TEETH
A LITTLE GINGER AND A LOT OF RUFFIE
OH YEAH...

I LIKE TO BANG A GONG
INSTEAD OF SINGING MYSELF TO SLEEP
PUT MY KIMONO ON
AND WE BE DANCING WITH MAJOR TOM
WE DO THE HARLAN SHAKE ALL NIGHT LONG

IN MY NEON NURSERY

MY MOM AND DAD ARE OFF IN A DREAM STATE
I AM THE COSMOS WITH MY NEON MATES
OH YEAH...

SWIM THRU VANILLA FUDGE AND SWEET POTATO PIE
ELECTRIC CARROTS GOT A TICKET TO RIDE
OH YEAH...

I AIN'T NO JUNGLEFACE JAKE
I'M BUNI KIMONO THAT'S ME
WE DO THE 21ST SHAKE
AND WE BE DANCING WITH MAJOR TOM
IN FOOTY SLEEPERS ALL NIGHT LONG

IN MY NEON NURSERY
